Incident at SASKATOON / JOHN G. DIEFENBAKER INTL SK (CYXE)

Summary

1996-04-22: A Navion "A" Range Master aircraft was approaching Saskatoon/John G. Diefenbaker airport on a private travel flight from Trail, British Columbia. When the pilot selected the landing gear down, the landing gear indicator did not show the nose gear to be down and locked. The pilot commenced a missed approach, and in the circuit, recycled the landing gear. The gear still did not indicate the nose gear to be down, but the pilot believed the gear to be down, and landed without further incident. ERS responded and was standing by. After landing, the pilot cleaned and adjusted the landing gear indicator bulb contacts, after which the system functioned normally.
